Fun workplace

Loved working there good people to talk to everyday and was cool having them in my bubble when covid was happening really likes working there. Sometimes they’d have free lunches and that was good and they had free coffee and hot chocolates in the morning breaks cause it was still early and cold.

Pros

Good company

Cons

Fast working

Productive environment, fast paced with friendly team members to work with.

I worked part time as a fresh produce packer and quality grader for 6 months. During this time I became extremely proficient in working within the produce industry. Learning new skills and supporting senior management and team members across multiple produce lines.

Great job forkift driving

Forklift driving great Most Workers, management, supervisors are two faced and dishonest. I loved the job but for some reason I found out that all the forkies said and complained that I was the cause of them having accidents. Which is VERY UNTRUE and FALSE Never ever say to anyone to go to T & G Global westside. Whakatu, Hastings.

Pros

Driving forklift

Cons

Workers, management and supervisors

Great job

Great job to gain experience in a wide range of cold store duties. Although it was seasonal it can lead to a eight month contract. Great people to work with.

Cons

Some long hours with some overtime

I work with awesome people with awesome bosses

The people I work with are great and knowledgeable and my bosses know that family come first no matter what if myself or anyone needs time off for that stuff then there's no questions asked. They also understand I'm a firefighter a d sometimes I have early morning call outs and can't make it to work the next day or am going to be late and there are awesome.

Excellent to work

Fun place to work with supportive management. Great team work. no back stabbing. Management will consider you as a valuable resource and support in your personal development. Always challenging and exciting due to new projects. Get to learn all spectrum of your area rather than working in your corner.

Pros

Fun, Exciting, supportive

Cons

Salary level

working in a Glass house full of different cultures

At Turner and Growers there are a lot of different types of jobs that you can do in the Glass house. everyday you are doing the same thing just in a different area. There are no hard parts about the job and it is a fun place to work at when you like working with different cultures.
